The Region

The Natur Park Ötscher-Tormäuer
Our Alpenhotel is situated in the midst of the Ötscher-Tormäuer Nature Park that was created around the Ötscher in 1970. With an area of 170 km² it is the largest nature preserve in Lower Austria. Vast forests, wide expanses of alpine meadows, narrow gorges and waterfalls lead to the summit of the Ötscher (1,893 m). The Erlauf’s deeply cut valleys are unusual (the Upper and Lower Tormäuer) and particularly those of the Ötscher Stream – the Ötschergräben, also known as the »Grand Canyon of Austria«. Here you will find a digital route planner for the hikers’ paradise Ötscher Tormäuer:

The Mariazell Railway
The Mariazell Railway is a narrow gauge railway in the Mostviertel region of Lower Austria. It begins in the provincial capital, St. Pölten, and ends at the pilgrimage site, Mariazell, in Styria. A special experience is a nostalgia trip. Between May and October the nostalgia train »Panoramic 760« travels between St. Pölten and Mariazell and back.  Alpenhotel Gösing will be pleased to arrange this nostalgia trip for you or any other special trip.

On the Lumber Trail
